I chose this hotel because it is close to the motorway through Rouen as we were only staying 1 night on our drive back to the UK from the Dordogne. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit Rouen, but if you wanted to do that then you'd probably want somewhere more central as this is several km away from the centre.
It's a pretty standard mid range chain hotel, there is plenty of parking (inside a security gate), the lobby is bright and spacious and the rooms are nice enough. There is space for 2 put-me-up beds for kids which was ideal for us, and you don't pay extra. The wifi in the rooms was really good. Dinner was good, if a little pricey, although we had a very curt waiter, he was actually a comical cliche of a grumpy french waiter and we weren't offended at all. Apart from that the other staff were excellent. Breakfast is expensive (16.50 Euros) although kids are free so it balances out a bit.
It is about 2.5 hours to Calais so is well situated if you're driving to or from the south and is easily accessible, so I'd recomend this place for an easy and comfortable stopover.
